Spirit and Patriotism - Three attempts to enlist

Great regret was felt on the Mid Richmond early this week when word came through announcing the death at the front of Pte. Stanley Giggins, son of Mr. and Mrs. S. Giggins, of Dungarubba. The young man was very popular amongst all who knew him, and his spirit and patriotism were evidenced by the fact that he made three attempts to enlist before finally getting away. The sympathy of a host of friends all over the district will go out to the parents and family in their, deep bereavement.
